7 Are you not to Me like the children of Ethiopians, O Children of Israel? — the words of Hashem — have I not brought up Israel from the land of Egypt, the Philistines from Caphtor, and Aram from Kir? 8 Behold! — the eyes of my Lord Hashem/Elohim are upon the sinful monarchy, and I will waste it from upon the face of the earth; but I will not utterly destroy the House of Jacob — the words of Hashem. 9 For behold I command! I shall shake the House of Israel among all the nations as one shakes [grain] in a sieve, and no pebble shall fall to the ground. 10 By the sword will all the sinners of My people die, those who say, "The evil will not approach and overtake us!"
11 On that day I will erect David's fallen booth; I will repair their breaches and erect his ruins, and I will rebuild it as in days of old. 12 So that they will conquer the remnant of Edom and all the nations, for My Name is upon them — the words of Hashem Who brings this about.
13 Behold — days are coming — the words of Hashem — when the plower will encounter the reaper, and he who treads upon the grapes will meet the one who brings the seeds; the mountains will drip with wine and the hills will melt [with fat]. 14 I shall bring back the captivity of My people Israel, and they will rebuild desolate cities; they will return and plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. 15 I shall implant them upon their Land; they will not be uprooted again from upon their Land that I have given them, says Hashem, your God.
